Wilbur's Shed

1 site · RV, Tent60 acres · Blairs Mills, PA
This location is two hours south of PSU, five hours west of NYC, and twenty minutes north of the I-76 Turnpike Willow Hill Exit. There is some cell service, but it is limited. Can you hear me now? Be sure to save site information on your phone before you leave, in case you lose cell-service. This is not Alaska, but it is not a KOA campground, either. There is a gutter when you turn off the road onto the lane. Please turn at a 45 degree angle and enter the lane gently or your vehicle with scrape the road. I have 30"x20' culvert to install, but I haven't yet made the commitment begin such a significant project. Nearby is the Tuscarora Creek which is excellent for trout fishing. The Tuscarora has a small but lovely window for kayaking from mid-March through the end of May. Please contact the host if you would like help to plan some paddle logistics. Twenty minutes south is Big Spring State Park which has an abandoned RR tunnel form the late 1800s. Forty-five minutes away is the 1,000 steps near Mt. Union which is part of the Standing Stone Trail that runs from Cowan’s Gap State Park to PSU. The Steps provides and amazing view of the Juniata River, and is a strenuous heart work-out. If members of your party would like a more pampered camping experience that includes real beds and hot showers, there is an adjoining property for rent on air b and b. Google search for The Crowe's Lounge.

You can enjoy kayaking, fishing, being right on the creek, and peace and quiet. There is also a mowed section along the creek that allows you easy access to the water with a small rock-style beach.

This property is the perfect place to get away but close enough to town to enjoy local restaurants/amenities. It is only 1 mile away from Historic Downtown Mercersburg, which has bars, restaurants and stores to buy anything you may need.

The best camping near Fowlers Hollow State Park guide

Overview

About

Fouled only by the perfuming decay of earl-Spring’s plant mass, Fowlers Hollow State Park echoes a varied call; a call that can be interpreted by the camping masses. Canvasses by an array of multi-use trails, Fowlers Hollow Park is a mecca for the seasons (and practicing novice) mountain biker who’s eager to engage the next gear―and that gear’s riddled with rocky terrains. Aside from the endurance-testing mountain biking, the park’s more well-manicured hiking trails offer easy midday strolls through the Tuscarora State Forest that both you and your Instagram followers can appreciate. And, reverberating its rustic surroundings, Fowler Hollow State Park offers only a few primitive campsites to spend the night in.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Fowlers Hollow State Park is during the spring and fall when the weather is mild and the natural scenery is at its peak. Summer offers lush greenery, but can be crowded. Winters are quiet but can be quite cold, so be prepared if you venture during this season.

Know before you go

  • Check the weather forecast before your visit to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
  • Be aware of park hours, typically from dawn until dusk, and plan your activities accordingly.
  • Remember to pack out all trash and leave the park as pristine as you found it.
  • Stay on designated trails to protect the park's natural habitats and your own safety.
  • Visit the park's website or contact the visitor center for the latest information on closures and accessibility.
